Marcos Alonso: FA charges Chelsea defender with violent conduct

Antonio Rudiger

The Spain worldwide stood on Long's calf in the first half of Chelsea's 3-2 win over Southampton at St Mary's in the Premier League at the weekend.

'Alonso denied the charge and further submitted that if found proven the suspension would be excessive, however, this was rejected following Wednesday's hearing.

"I said after the game I thought it needed to be looked at, not really trying to get somebody in trouble, but I just felt it was a bad challenge", said Hughes, whose side travel to Leicester on Thursday.

TV footage showed Alonso catch Long on the calf with his studs shortly before half-time in Chelsea's 3-2 victory at Southampton, but referee Mike Dean and his assistants missed the incident and consequently took no action.


Chelsea defender Marcus Alonso has been handed a three-game ban by the English FA and will miss Sunday's FA Cup clash against Southampton at Wembley Stadium.

The 27-year-old Alonso was Chelsea's only representative in the Professional Footballers' Association Premier League team of the year that was announced Wednesday. "The disappointment was the officials didn't see it", said the Southampton boss. "They were all within a 10 to 15-metre radius - one of them should have seen it".

Emerson Palmieri, who has made just three appearances since signing from Roma for an initial €20million fee in January, is expected to replace Alonso.
